Amber Mahaffey (@tatted_blondeee) of Amber's Chair, Myrtle Beach, SC, specializes in color correcting, high lift platinums and bright hair. When we saw this transformation we asked for more details.
Here she shares the HOW TO:
Step 1: Using Redken Flash Lift and 20 volume developer with Olaplex, apply heavy foil highlights throughout to break up newgrowth. Process with heat for 8 minutes, then room temperature for 10.
Step 2: Tone with Redken Shades EQ 9v and 9t with a splash of clear for 6 minutes. Lightly shampoo with Pravana Pure Light.
Step 3: Blow dry and section for color. Prepare 4 formulas with Olaplex number 2 in each formula:
#1 Pravana clear 1 oz, 2 pea sized dots Pravana violet
#2 Pravana clear 1/4 oz 1oz silver pea size dot violet
#3 1oz Pravana silver and 1 in ribbon locked in blue
#4 Pravana silver by itself.
Step 4: Apply using a color melting technique, rotating colors from roots to end.
Step 5: Process 35 minutes at room temperature. Rinse with COLD water and condition only.
